Because it's newer, it has stuff like USB 3.0 and a SATA 3 hot-swap dock. It also has larger fans, though it can fit less of them overall.

The 800D is bigger, can fit more hardware, and is far better for watercooling users.

When will the SATA 3 how swap dock be ready for the 800D

I also put in a request for a replacement door for my 800D but never got a email back? Can you PM me a email of someone who gets things done @ Corsair?

the trickiest part is to figure out how to remove it, I say its really easy to de-rivet the entire front to loosen up the drive bays and it comes out easily. If not, you have to remove two rubber strips between the odd and the hdd using a flat head. the bottom is the most challenging part, it sits on four metal "spikes" through a larger rubber pad. once the top is loose, its just a matter of prying the bottom off those spikes and manhandling, shifting, pulling, (and a bit of cursing ) to pull out the swap bay. Again, if you have rivets, I would just remove the front metal panel and loosen it up a bit and go from there. I would have done this but it didn't occur to me

To install it this way, line up the left edge of the swap bay w/ the rear of the odd bay, this will leave that ~30mm gap in front for the 140mm fan. I riveted the top using the same rubber pad/strips to secure it and the bottom I drilled a couple of holes and used some screws along w/ the bottom rubber pad to secure it. good luck

edit: some pics

I really can't comment on unannounced products. But I will say that we've been very busy with the 600T White, 650D, and a few other projects lately. An 800D upgrade/next-gen edition hasn't been ignored, but there was a lot of the lineup that had to be updated first.

You're not going to see the 801D or whatever next week, though.
post #2549 of 8657
Hey 800D owners! I am getting ready for another build, and have never dealt with watercooling. I have already determined I am getting the 800D. Have a few questions if anyone can help. Been browsing this thread and its seriously long, but I have seen a few systems I really like.

*Money isn't really an issue, when I build I try to go all out so. But of course the more I save the better, I just don't want to put cheap components in my rig.

Reservoir, should I get XSPC Single or Dual Reservoir.
Pump (need advice)
Tubing (PrimoChill or Tygon *advice?*) 1/2 ID?
I want to go with an XSPC radiator. Thinking RX360?
CPU Waterblock (recommend me one)
Barbs and Fittings, what do you guys recommend?
Cable Sleeving: I noticed a few systems with the red / white cable sleeving on the PSU cables etc, and it looks good. Where are you guys finding this?

On the loop I am undetermined where this would be my first WC build. CPU cooling is a given, but since I am undetermined at what GPU I will be getting (It will be ATI) not sure if I should do WC on gpu's. I like what I have seen of the EK gpu blocks.

My main question is will the RX360 be enough, or do I need to purchase a 240/120 as well. And would you Push/Pull the 360? I am trying to get the best performance possible. I will be overclocking CPU for sure. If I do not go with GPU cooling, I am going with the MSI Frozr series.

Some future system specs: i5 2500k or i7 2600k, MSI/Asus Motherboard, 8gb DDR3, GPU ATI 6*** series.

Thanks for any help in advance, and sorry this was such a long post.
